About Wakatipu Grill
Our Signature lakeside restaurant, the Wakatipu Grill, at the Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa reflects the best of New Zealand's culinary heritage. The cuisine is inspiring with provocative takes on New Zealand flavors. Vast windows, an open kitchen and rotisserie, along with two circular slate fireplaces lend even more drama to this magnificent space. In the bar, be tempted by yet another captivating perspective of the lake, or an exceptional vintage - the 1000-strong wine cellar has a keen focus on Otago's best winemakers. Linger on the generous terrace where the elements combine to spectacular effect: the lake's indigo depths, the clear air and a decadent outdoor fire pit.
High Tea is served every Sunday 13.00 - 15.00
Amazing service beautiful food. We were treated like royalty. Thank you so much!
The manager from Kerry Ireland who seated us set the atmosphere for a great night. I have been to wakitipu grill several times and come back each time for the excellent service and delicious food. However, this time the bar was set even higher. The manager from Kerry helped us celebrate our new baby and grandparents visiting from the UK from the moment he sat us. Then we had Laura from Falkirk as our waitress who’s service was seamless and delightful. All around a great experience- thank you! The food, as always - incredible!
Service was excellent and food so good
Excellent experience, as always.
The maître was outstanding when he greeted us coming in and the waitress that looked after our table was great. Well done
Hey again a first class experience. One of my top three desserts (braeburn apple banoffee)
We had a great meal with an awesome view as we sat right in the window looking over the lake. Dishes were well put together and the amuse-bouche was a nice touch.
Great service from the start and beautiful views. Food was beautifully presented and delicious!
Draughty in the glassed area - asked to be moved eventually but enjoyed our evening with you.
Lovely setting and great food.
Thanks for a wonderful "date night". Beautiful dinner - the cerviche entree a standout. Bar service by the lovely Canadian girl great and amazing attention and service from Matt the Manager, thanks for a lovely night.
Diana was our waitress for the evening we also had her the night before in the bar, amazing sense of humour and very professional with it, made our night, couldn’t do enough for us, presentation and flavours of food right up there, all ten of us had not a thing left on our plates
Lovely place to spend an afternoon tea. View is awesome!
Loved the little extras a real surprise awesome food,service couldn’t fault it would certainly recommend will be back won’t leave it so long !!
Wonderful service, views and food!
Iran Lutton was excellent and helped turn around a previous nights disappointment. The Italian was very good too
The high tea is surprisingly filling and beautiful presented. Had a wonderful time and would definitely come back again.
Seating was slow, thought we were invisible until mgt came over to discuss menu, water sat empty at least 4 times, wine glass empty for too long, main finally came after long wait and sides were not warm had to be sent back. Food was good, people were friendly when they did talk to you but I heard "I'm Sorry" about a dozen times. I'm sorry for the poor service review but I would expect more from a venue and prices here.
Was fantastic and food was delicious.
Beautiful meal, beautifully presented in a superb location!
We have previously been for dinner and always have a great experience. However we were really disappointed with the high tea. We feel that it was very overpriced for what it was. We have had a number of high tea afternoons at various other places and this was not the best, however was one of the most expensive. We weren't provided with any sort of drinks menu so weren't even sure which tea's were available. This is also the only place we have been where the children paid the same amount as an adult, which made it very pricey.
